Vintage WWII Canadian Army Willys Jeep Photos

by Wes Kibble on October 28, 2010



Dave from Ewillys.com recently came across a goldmine of vintage army photos from the Canadian military. The photos are from the National Archives Of Canada website. I found the photos interesting for a number of reasons. First of all, I am Canadian and love Canadian history. Secondly, the photos have the names of people and location of the photos where possible, along with the month and year. For example, the photo above was tagged “Troopers of the Three Rivers Regiment in a jeep, England, 22 July 1942.”

Throughout the next few weeks, we will be featuring a number of the photos. You can bet I will be looking for photos of my grandparents!
